Our inclusive community

Our school is a place where music meets inclusivity, and we pride ourselves on being open and supportive of neurodiversity.

Within the Music Tree team, several of us have ADHD or are on the autism spectrum. This personal experience enriches our environment, fostering empathy and understanding.

At Music Tree, we passionately support families with children who have special needs or neurodiversities.

We believe music offers a unique space for self-discovery, cognitive development, and psychomotor skills enhancement. Our approach is holistic and inclusive, making sure every student feels seen and heard.

You’ll often hear us openly discussing our own neurodiversities or mental health. We believe in the power of sharing and understanding, creating a community where everyone feels comfortable and supported.

Expert support

We’re also incredibly fortunate to have the expertise of Flavia Capoano, our SENCO consultant, psychologist, and ABA supervisor. Flavia is here to help us navigate particular situations and provide psychological support to our teachers and students whenever needed.

At Music Tree, we’re more than just a music school, we’re a community that celebrates every individual’s unique journey.

MUSIC THERAPY

For children and young adults

Music therapy is a powerful and effective form of therapy that utilises the inherent qualities of music to address the unique needs of children. It offers numerous benefits and plays a vital role in promoting their overall well-being and development.

Music therapy can support children in emotional expression and regulation. Music has the ability to evoke and convey emotions in a safe and non-threatening manner, allowing children to explore and express their feelings.

This can be particularly helpful for children who struggle with verbal communication or have difficulty expressing their emotions in traditional ways.

Additionally, music therapy enhances cognitive development in children. Engaging with music stimulates various areas of the brain, promoting improved memory, attention, and problem-solving skills. It can also enhance language development and literacy by improving auditory processing and promoting the acquisition of language through singing and rhythmic patterns.

Furthermore, music therapy supports social interaction and communication skills. Participating in music-making activities encourages children to collaborate, take turns, and listen to others, fostering important social skills and enhancing their ability to connect with peers. 

Motor skills development is another area where music therapy proves beneficial. Playing musical instruments or engaging in movement-based activities coordinated with music can improve fine and gross motor skills, coordination, and overall physical development in children.

Moreover, music therapy provides a positive and enjoyable outlet for self-expression and creativity. It can boost self-esteem and self-confidence, allowing children to explore their talents and abilities in a non-judgmental environment. This sense of accomplishment and empowerment can have a profound impact on their overall sense of well-being.

Through personalized and targeted interventions, music therapists can address specific goals and support the unique needs of each child.
